Sandeep Jauhar

Sandeep Jauhar has written three books, all published by Farrar, Straus, and Giroux. His first book, "Intern: A Doctor's Initiation," was a national bestseller and was optioned by NBC for a dramatic television series.

His second book, "Doctored: The Disillusionment of an American Physician," released in August 2014, was a New York Times bestseller and was named a New York Post Best Book of 2014. It was praised as "highly engaging and disarmingly candid" by The Wall Street Journal, "beautifully written and unsparing" by The Boston Globe, and "extraordinary, brave and even shocking" by The New York Times.

"Heart: A History," his latest book, an Amazon Best Book of the Month, tells the colorful and little-known story of the doctors who risked their careers and the patients who risked their lives to know and heal our most vital organ. It has been praised as "gripping...(and) strange and captivating" by The New York Times, "fascinating" by The Washington Post, "poignant and chattily erudite" by The Wall Street Journal, and "elegiac" by The American Scholar. It was named a best book of 2018 by the Mail on Sunday, Science Friday, Zocalo Public Square, and the Los Angeles Public Library, and was the PBS NewsHour/New York Times book club pick for January 2019. It has been shortlisted for the 2019 Wellcome Book Prize.
